As baseball analytics have evolved and grown at an exponential pace over the last decade, unprecedented amounts of data have been collected by teams. At the same time, as sabermetrics gained more mainstream legitimacy, sabr skeptics have changed their counter arguments. The fancy newfangled maths aren’t illegitimate, but rather there is simply too much information now. Too much noise from which to divine a signal. Or so the latest skeptic line of thinking goes. Now, though, it seems one team is using technology to squelch the noise and refine their strategy through data analysis.
LeBron James has the “clutch” gene, right? So the First Sportsman counts on that clutchness, as well.
From Bleacher Report:
The president’s signature initiative, the Affordable Care Act, is facing a critical deadline, as open enrollment into the marketplaces on HealthCare.gov is scheduled to end on March 31. In a race to beat the buzzer, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have been enlisting celebrities popular with young adults, including several in sports, to raise awareness and promote the merits of signing up.
So Obama recently contacted the Miami Heat forward and requested his assistance, offering a number of different ways James could contribute.
“Any way I can help the president, that’s pretty cool,” James said Wednesday night.
What is the play call for LeBron in this situation? Here it is, and this will be seen during March Madness.
The King is a Barry backer, who has previously contributed to his campaign. So it is not surprising that Barry has asked for his assistance.
While LeBron James is busy placing himself on the Mt Rushmore of NBA players, Kevin Durant has a different take on the best of all-time. Durant isn’t ready to give himself too much credit, at least yet, but he does have an opinion that will probably elicited some cheers and jeers, especially from the age old internet argument of LeBron vs Kobe.
After Richard Sherman’s fiery interview with Erin Andrews immediately following the NFC Championship Game, the notice had been served that Sherman will simply not take trash talk lying down. On Thursday, DeAngelo Hall decided to test this out. In his career, Hall has seemingly sought to emulate Deion Sanders in every way, save for actually playing like Deion. Hall wore his number with the Falcons, stole his Primetime dance, and is a notorious yapper on the field. Let’s examine the back and forth.

Something that may have gone a bit unnoticed during NFL Free Agency is that Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer has been extremely quiet. Typically, we see Glazer tweeting signings before many other reporters, and he is the premier insider for the NFL. The reason for his absence was a back procedure that he had on Tuesday which turned into a much more serious situation when he began choking on his own vomit, according to a report from TMZ Sports.
Glazer was rushed to an L.A. area hospital where his breathing was so shallow his blood oxygen level dropped into the 70s (90-100 is normal) — which over any prolonged period can easily turn into a life or death situation.
FOX’s NFL and UFC insider is still getting treatment to clear his lungs, and has improved slightly … but it’s unclear how much longer he’ll be hospitalized.
We hope Glazer has a speedy recovery and that he can get back to doing what he does, better than anyone else.
